Monday Night Therapy: With Matt Brown about EA Sports College Football AND the future of College Athletics

My former boss Matt Brown will be joining me tonight for Monday Night Therapy.

Matt Brown is the founder of Extra Points, a newsletter that talks about the college part of college sports. He is the most knowledgeable person on the entire planet about EA Sports College Football, the video game, outside of those who work for EA Sports.

We will be discussing EA Sports COLLEGE FOOTBALL!

Matt Brown has also been following the House versus NCAA case, and there is talk of a negotiated settlement coming up that will compensate, as part of the settlement, will compensate college athletes.

It is expected that this will cost sizable athletic departments that wish to participate between $17 and $22 million a year, according to Ross Dellenger in a published article on Yahoo Sports a few days ago.

Big schools like Nebraska - land grant institutions, members of the Big Ten and SEC are going to be able to afford the provisions in this settlement. Matt and I will discuss what the potential settlement means for college sports in the not too distant future.

What’s gonna happen to all the Division II and Division III schools, or even the group of five schools that can’t afford to just pump out $20 million to pay their athletes?

What will happen to Olympic sports across the board?
